ORIGINAL TITLE:
The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins
New Zealand / 2007 / 98 min
DIRECTOR:
Pietra Brettkelly
Life imitates art. Art abuses life.

 

Artist Vanessa Beecroft works with "constructed situations" using the stereotypes of commodified culture to stage living tableaus in order to make the spectator conscious of his own gaze and the fine line between keeping up appearances and losing face.
